It’s been a busy week for the celebrity unit of CPS Los Angeles. First, they started an investigation into Brad Pitt’s alleged bad daddy situation, and now they’re looking at Chris Brown. One would think that child services opened a case the moment they heard the words “Chris Brown is a father“, but this is the first time he’s being investigated. Although if you ask him, there is no investigation.
Yesterday, TMZ reported that Chris Brown was paid a visit by the LAPD and L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services to check in on his 2-year-old daughter Royalty Brown after receiving a call from Royalty’s mom Nia Guzman. Nia became concerned for Royalty’s safety after Chris allegedly pulled a gun on a woman at his house last month. Royalty wasn’t at Chris’ house when it happened and every visit with her dad since the incident has been monitored. But Nia clearly thought a CPS check-up was necessary. TMZ says Nia made the call after the gun-pulling incident.
Once the news got out that the DCFS was examining Chris Brown’s parenting skills, he did what he usually does when someone has accused him of something. He released a Chris Brown-y Instagram video slapping back at the haters spreading LIES that he’s a shitty dad. Chris has since deleted the video, but TMZ has it:
In case you can’t watch, he says:
“A lot of people probably like ‘Why does he always say something, why does he comment on things, why does he talk about it?’ Because I don’t get the benefit of doubt as everybody else. Somebody make an accusation, 90% of y’all believe it, and it’s bullshit. The last three weeks or whatever have been going on with accusations, you know it’s false. Even the people that’s reporting it know it’s bullshit. So in the midst of that, it started to trickle down into my parenthood, me being a father.
I take great pride in being a father. I take great responsibility in being a father. I love my daughter. I make sure she’s healthy, her education, I pay for it all. Never have an issue with that. What I do have an issue with is if there’s one inkling of a problem, somebody uses that a meal ticket instead of treatment for their daughter. I take care of my daughter fully. So everything else, all these allegations are bullshit. Stop lying bro. Stop fucking lying. It’s annoying bro, I’ve got enough on my plate. Straight up.”
TMZ says that Chris is technically telling the truth about not being investigated by the DCFS. Sources tell them that Chris refused to speak with DCFS and the LAPD when they showed up to his house yesterday. He didn’t even open the security gate to let them on the property.
Just two weeks before the alleged gun-pulling incident at his house, he and Nia were fighting in court over child support. Nia was trying to get her child support checks bumped up from $2,500 a month to $16,000 a month (which was denied) and full custody of Royalty (also denied). The judge also ordered her to give back $20,000 that Chris gave her for legal fees.
Obviously the person I feel most bad for in this situation is Royalty. But the person I feel second-most bad for is the DCFS employee who ends up investigating this situation. Trying to decide who is the better parent between two living headaches like Chris Brown and Nia Guzman will yield a report that’s covered with question marks and CVS receipts for bottles of Tylenol. “Can I recommend Royalty sue her parents for emancipation like in the 1984 film Irreconcilable Differences? I can’t? Well then I don’t know what to tell you.”
